GWR Polo on the Beach is back for a ninth year

And it's free to attend!

GWR Polo on the Beach will take place on the beach at Watergate Bay on Friday 26, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 June 2015.

Expect an event that’s bigger and better than ever before. Polo is what this weekend is all about, and this year we’re looking to play three matches with a Friday and Saturday evening match at 6pm and one on Sunday morning at 11.30am.

There will also be lots of other exciting events in the build-up to our main event. Polo demonstrations, beach activities, live music, the Devil’s Horseman display team (last seen here in 2013), activities for the children organised by our Kids Zone, a public dog show from St Francis Home for Animals and Watergate Bay Surf Lifesaving club will keep the crowds entertained throughout the day, with the festival feel continuing through until the night with live music and the ticketed GWR Polo on the Beach Party on Saturday 27 June.

A selection of street food vendors will serving delicious food from midday through into the evening, as well as a Champagne garden and beach bar.

Most importantly, GWR Polo on the Beach is free to attend!

We look forward to seeing you on 26, 27 and 28 June.

“There was yet more sparkle to spectator sport this month in Cornwall at Watergate Bay, where England player Jamie Le Hardy competed at Polo on the Beach. Match times were determined by the tide, but bubbly flowed all day from the shiny Airstream parked on the sand.”




Celebrate the winning team, rub shoulders with the polo players and party into the night.

On Saturday 27 June the music arena on the beach will be transformed into the first ever GWR Polo on the Beach party.
